One way we connect with people is through English Conversation Club. Tonight's theme is Friendship.
We'll open with these questions:
- Describe a friend you have known in your life.
- What makes a good friend?
- Why are friends important?
- Why do some friendships end?
- Why do some friendships last?
We'll discuss these quotes:
